Edgar Winter's musical career began almost forty years ago when he began playing in bands with his elder brother Johnny, the famous white bluesman and guitarist.
A child prodigy and multi instrumentalist, Edgar's principal instruments are alto sax, keyboards and synthesizer - he was amongst the first musicians to take up and promote the newly-developed instrument.
After making a memorable appearance at the legendary Woodstock Festival in 1969 Edgar signed to Epic Records and went on to enjoy considerable success in the early Seventies playing his commercial blend of blues, jazz and R&B.
Edgar has over twenty albums to his name, including the double platinum-selling 'They Only Come Out At Night'.
In 1973 he had two major US hit singles with 'Free Ride' and the chart-topping 'Frankenstein', the first pop track to feature a synthesizer lead.
Both singles, along with 'Tobacco Road', remain firm favourites with rock radio stations throughout the world. All three feature in this concert.
Over the years he has kept up a busy worldwide touring schedule and 'Frankenstein' was featured in the soundtrack to the blockbuster movie 'Wayne's World 2'. This, along with Edgar's recent appearances in TV shows and commercials in the States and film work, has raised his profile considerably and led to a significant career revival.
